The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A man whose identity was not released by the authorities was devoured by crocodiles at the Tarcoles River, as confirmed by the office monitoring the Costa Rican Red Cross. The incident occurred at 5:20 pm on Tuesday.
The Red Cross handled this incident as an aquatic accident.
The regional director of the Red Cross of Puntarenas, Rigoberto Rodriguez, said that two men had come down on a bus coming from Parrita. The subjects came to the area after being laid off from work and went to drink liquor to a nearby bar. When they reached the banks of the river, one of them decided to swim in the river and actually jumped into the water.
Rodriguez added that five minutes later, the subject was attacked by the crocodiles found there. Troops of the Red Cross said that on reaching the place they could see some human remains in the river.
